Safety Precautions


For your safety
and protection of
the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY, please
read and abide by the following safety precautions.


1.

The input voltage of the AC adapter is 100V
-

240V, and the output
is DC 5V / 2A.


2.

When the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY is shipped, the battery may be
pa
ckaged separate from the unit to avoid damage. When you use
the Braille Sense U2 for the first time, you may need to open the
package, remove the battery, and insert it into the battery slot On the
underside of the unit. (see section 1, introduction, for m
ore details
on inserting the battery.) It is possible that the dealer or distributor
from whom you purchased the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY has
already done this for you. The battery may not be fully charged
when it is shipped. Before you use the Braille Sens
e U2 QWERTY,
you should ensure the battery is fully charged.


3.

When you use the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY with the battery for
the first time, the battery status may not be displayed accurately. To
avoid this, leave the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY connected to t
he
AC adapter for about six hours with the unit turned on. If you want to
use the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY immediately, you may use it
while it is charging.


4.


If you want or need to remove the battery from the unit, power the
unit off, and then remove the battery. If the unit is connected to AC
power, before re
-
inserting the battery in to the unit, make certain that
the power is off.

There is a risk of explosio
n if the battery is replaced by an incorrect
type. Please make certain to use only battery packs produced
specifically for the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY by HIMS. Please
dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.

3



5.

When you are using the Braille
Sense U2 QWERTY on battery
power, the status of the remaining battery power is announced when
the battery charge is low. When the battery’s charge falls below 15
percent, connect the AC adapter to the unit for recharging. If the
remaining battery charge dr
ops to five percent, and the unit is not
connected to the AC adapter, the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY shuts
down one minute after the announcement of the battery’s status.
The amount of battery life per charge varies depending on the
options you have set and t
he number and type of tasks you are
running.


6.

Your Braille Sense U2 QWERTY needs to be handled with care. The
Braille Sense U2 QWERTY is a very delicate machine. Please
handle the unit in a proper, careful manner. The Braille Sense U2
QWERTY is very sensit
ive to dust. Make sure to keep the Braille
Sense U2 QWERTY away from dusty environments.


7.

The Braille cells

are very sensitive, intricate
parts. If the Braille cells
are not working properly due to the presence of dust or for any other
reason, please conta
ct our repair center, or the dealer from whom
you purchased the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY for support.


8.

ensure further maintenance, service, and upgrade information.

to register your information. If you
have any trouble when registering your information, please contact
the dealer from whom you purchased your Braille Sense U2
QWERTY for help.


9.

Do not take apart the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY yourself. Do not
have anyone el
se who is not authorized by HIMS take apart the
Braille Sense U2 QWERTY. If an unqualified person disassembles
the unit, serious damage may occur to the Braille Sense U2
QWERTY. If an unauthorized person disassembles the Braille Sense
4


U2 QWERTY, the unit i
s excluded from any free maintenance, and
the warranty becomes void. If any liquid or external force damages
the unit, it may also be excluded from free maintenance, even if the
damage occurs during the warranty period.


10.
Do not leave your Braille Sense U2
QWERTY in closed or high
temperature environments such as inside a car on a hot summer
day, as the battery attached to the Braille Sense U2 QWERTY may
be damaged or catch fire. Please do not let your Braille Sense U2
